Fox News this week captured video footage of U.S. Border Patrol agents releasing Chinese nationals who had illegally crossed the southern border.
On Monday, Fox News reporter Griff Jenkins posted a video on Twitter showing Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley rounding up a group of Chinese immigrants as they crossed illegally into the country. On Tuesday, Jenkins posted another video showing Border Patrol agents in Brownsville, Texas releasing a group of Chinese nationals with notices to appear in court. (See below.)

The Chinese illegals were released to an NGO because there apparently is no room to house them at a regular facility, Jenkins reported.
Border Patrol has reported that more than 4,300 Chinese migrants have been caught crossing the border illegally through the first five months of fiscal year 2023, which began on Oct. 1. That number of Chinese illegally crossing the border is more than double the previous year’s total and is almost certainly higher as hundreds of migrants make it into the U.S. on a daily basis without being detected.
The overwhelming majority of the Chinese crossing illegally into the U.S. are military-aged men.
Ohio Republican Sen. JD Vance said Team Biden is “releasing illegal aliens from China with little more than a piece of paper promising they’ll eventually appear in court. Will they spy on Americans? Collect intelligence on our military installations? Our own government apparently doesn’t care to find out.”
In a substack.com analysis, a writer who goes by the handle @amuse, noted: “While the Biden administration is fixated on its proxy war in Ukraine, emptying both our ammunition stockpiles and our strategic petroleum reserve, China is quietly sending thousands of military-age males across our southern border. Just as the first Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang, built his secret terracotta army to accompany him in the afterlife President Xi is building a secret modern-day terracotta army right here in our backyard. The question our policymakers should be asking is WHY?”
